You must first win interviews to get a job. You must have a resume free of negative connotations and suggestions.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2009
An online resume service, AlphaDogResumes.com, has published an article providing job seekers unique insight into writing a resume and cover letter specifically designed to win interviews. As more than 20 million Americans compete for jobs by submitting resumes and cover letters to online job search web sites, the importance of creating perfect resume templates, cover letters and supporting documents (such as an optimized list of references) becomes more crucial.
“You must first win interviews to get a job,” says Michael S. Speas, President of AlphaDog Resumes, Inc. AlphaDogResumes.com creates resumes and cover letters that help people attract interview callbacks through the use of keywords and phrases, the inclusion of detailed and quantified accomplishments and the avoidance of “hidden disqualifiers.” Speas says that the typical sample resume (sometimes called a CV) and sample cover letter do little to help the unemployed win that crucial interview. In fact, Speas points out that many resume examples and cover letter examples found on some resume writing web sites actually harm a job seeker’s chances of winning those interviews. “You must have a resume free of negative connotations and suggestions,” says Speas.
The article providing advice on creating the perfect resume template and cover letter template is one part of a 12 article series being published on the resume service web site blog, “Dominate your job search®”. The series of articles provides concrete, realistic advice to job seekers to improve their chances of winning interviews through online job searches. The advice ranges from topics such as resumes, resume cover letters, online job applications and thank you letters to which job search web sites to utilize, how to pick from sample resumes and sample cover letters and where you may find information on networking contacts at firms to which you are applying for a job.
Speas is a member of the National Resume Writers Association (NRWA) and the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches (PARW/CC), the premier certification associations for the resume writing and career coaching professions.
